It’s been a while since I’ve blogged a chunky family session. I have so much on my agenda at the moment, the blog has been low on the priority list. Winter has been incredibly busy with family sessions and thankfully Melbourne has been turning on some glorious sunny days.
My ‘long ago promised’ Indoor Shooting Guide is complete and will be sent when the new Love Your Camera site launches next week. My business workshop (for Family Photography) has been revitalised and now includes a printed workbook – so far there is just a Melbourne date on the calendar.
Love Your Camera workshops for Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Melbourne are all happening over the next few months. AND it’s school holidays!
And now for Kerrie and Ian. They are funny, gorgeous people with two beautiful billy lids – they also happen to be friends of mine :)
We shot these locally in the early morning. One of my most favourite locations, x
Love Jake and Taylah’s belly laughs!
I am writing this quick post from Hobart where I am spending the week at the AIPP Nikon Event. As is always the way when I travel, I am frantic in the days leading up to going away, trying desperately to bring everything up to date.
As I was falling asleep at my computer at midnight the night before our early flight it dawned on me – everything will never be done, finished, complete, up to date. That is the nature of business. I love the word acceptance – which my step-father told me years ago was such an important part of life. Often there are just things we need to accept and then move on. Rather than pulling it apart, over-analysing it, trying to reason with it or fix it…
Self employed people who work from home are notorious for working long hours – and I am one of them. Accepting that all the work will never be done, the Inbox will always be filling, there will always be sessions to process (god-willing)… took a weight off the stress I was feeling.
It will also change how I work when I return on Thursday. Each day I will give myself two or three important tasks that move my business forward and then I’ll turn the computer off knowing a day’s work has been done and it will all be there again tomorrow.
And, to add some pics, a few of the kids from our Sunday outing last week. x
One of the best ages to photograph babies – 6 months!
It is such a special role to photograph a wedding and share an entire day with a couple. A day that will always be one of their most important. Helping them remember it all with the photos that are taken.
Like Rebecca and Nic, their wedding day was minimal fuss – simply a day to celebrate being in love. Thank you beautiful Rebecca and Nic, x
They opted for ‘first-look’ and photos before the ceremony, which worked perfectly for the light and their ceremony/reception venue.
After their special hour, there was time for a quick touch up back at the hotel and then showtime. Comme is such a unique venue with the entrance staircase used as the aisle. The guests not only had a great vantage point being positioned around the staircase, but it made the ceremony very intimate.
I had not seen a wedding cheese cake before – so amazing!!
My next wedding is a beach ceremony on the Gold Coast in September – cannot wait!!
One of my most favourite ages to photograph, 6 to 12 months is just so delightful. x
